From JO’s sermon tonight:

the pictures you allow in your mind will determine what kind of life you live;  if your vision is limited your life will be limited

God asks 7 times in the scripture “what do you see?”;  God is interested in our vision

before your dream comes to pass, you have to see yourself accomplishing that dream, you’ve got to get a picture of it;  when you see yourself accomplishing your dreams, all these unseen forces move in your direction

there will be times when it seems that your dream isn’t going to come to pass;  go back to the picture God gave you.  God is saying to us “if you can see it I will do it,” “if you’ll get a vision for it I’ll bring it to pass”

life may not be fair but God IS fair

God’s plan was not cancelled because of a disappointment or an unfair situation…  or even because of a mistake you made.  if you’ll get a new vision, instead being a setback God will turn it into a set up to do something better

your life is going to follow your vision;  if you have a small vision you’re going to have a small life, but if you’ll let the seeds of greatness that God’s planting on the inside take root, if you’ll have a big vision, God will take you places you never thought possible

you don’t have to figure out how it’s going to happen, all you’ve got to do is believe;  one touch of God’s favor can bring any dream to pass

there should be something you’re dreaming about that’s too big for you to accomplish on your own;  have a big vision, that’s your faith being released.  God’s dream for your life is so much bigger, so much more rewarding than you can imagine

you may be in a place that doesn’t seem very good;  what you see on the outside doesn’t match what God has put on the inside. don’t sit around in self-pity, depressed, discouraged, go out and find someplace you can dream;  find someplace that inspires you, someplace where your faith will be elevated.  if you’re going to enlarge your vision you have to get out of a limited environment, put yourself somewhere bigger than you are right now

Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish

if you’re going to enlarge your vision you need to get around other dreamers, get around people that are going places, people that inspire you to rise higher.  God brings people into our life to help expand our vision.  be inspired; the right attitude is, “God, if you did it for them, you can do it for me.”  your vision is going to be greatly impacted by who you choose to associate with.

what you see will become a reality
